3 ways God is whispering to you right now
Do you sometimes feel like God is far away? Do you sometimes feel like you have search for God in order to feel his presence and hear his voice?
But something I have come to realize is that, often, when God feels far away, we are the ones who have distracted ourselves with many things. We have moved ourselves away. But God is ever-present and faithful.
My new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday, is an intimate and practical look at all the small ways God speaks to us, connects with us, and is present to us in our everyday experiences.
Here are three of the ways God whispers to us that we consider in the book:
1) Through other people.
Who are the people God has given you to love today? A stressed-out spouse? A crabby co-worker? A needy 4 year old? Meet God in them today.
2) Through joy.
Every tiny pleasure we enjoy is a small reflection of the goodness of God himself. What small joy will you embrace as a whisper from God today? A warm hug from a friend? A tree in full bloom? A soft bed at the end of the day? Find God in those joys today.
3) Through pain.
Everything we might suffer, whether big or small, is an invitation to grow closer to God. How can we answer? In heartbreak, disappointment, grief, or even small moments of discouragement or frustration, let's turn them over to God and hear what he is speaking to us through them.
I can't wait to share more on these topics and others with you in Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday.
This book is a perfect gift for yourself or for anyone you know who wants to develop a more intimate relationship with the ever-present God. Let's dive in together and grow closer to God!
God bless you this week,
